Elizabeth Warren speaks in Lowell, Mass. Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2011 during a debate between six Massachusetts Democratic candidates for the U.S. Senate seat held by Republican Scott Brown.

Elizabeth Warren’s first-quarter fundraising total has finally been counted, and it’s huge. The U.S. Senate candidate raised $6.9 million in the first three months of 2012, more than twice the amount Republican incumbent Scott Brown raised in the same period. When Brown’s camp announced its total last week, it predicted Warren would raise more because of her out-of-state fundraising, and indeed Warren’s campaign confirmed that the majority of the money she took in came from donors outside Massachusetts.
